I stared at my spreadsheet trying to decide how to word my question. Let me
Man A - Clendenin surname or variant spelling
Has six men listed by FTDNA as being GD 3.
Man A 385a = 12
Man A 1 385a = 11
Man A 2 385a = 11
Man A 3 385a = 11
Man A 4 385a = 11
Man A 5 385a = 11
Man A 6 385a = 11
Okay, so far so good. Next one is at 460:
Man A = 10
Man A1 = 11
Man A2 = 11
Man A3 = 11
Man A4 = 11
Man A5 = 11
Man A6 = 11
So far I have two one step mutations. The next one is at 456 where Man A,
A2, -3, -4, -5, and -6 have 16 and Man A1 has 15.
The next is at CDY-b. Man A, A1, and A2 have 39 while the rest have 40.
Man A2 has 39 at 389-2 while the rest have 39. So for the group being
compared to Man A I have one step mutations on five markers.
Man B encounters the first mutation at 391:
Man B = 10
Man B1 = 11
Man B2 = 11
Man B3 = 11
Man B4 = 11
Man B5 = 11
The next one shows up at 607:
Man B = 15
Man B1 - B5 = 16
The next is at 576
Man B = 17
Man B5 = 17
Man B1 - B4 = 18
The last one is at CDYb again:
Man B, B1, B2, B3, B4 all have 40 while Man B5 has a 41.
Did I remember to mention that Man A3 is the same as B1; A4 is the same as
B2; A5 is the same as B3; and A6 is the same as B4? By that I mean that
these four men show up in both groups
They have all tested to 37 markers; none have tested to 67 markers. They are
not all in Y Search.(some can't remember their passwords and I can't get
I have reached the jumping-off-the-cliff moment in this project. I would
like to have them all upgrade to 67 markers but one family is still
recovering from Katrina and another of the participants is terminal. I don't
have the money to pay the tests myself.
What am I seeing here that I am not recognizing and where do I go from here?
